Mrs. P from Lexington NE is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning Life

Help me give my students cooking equipment and cleaning equipment to help them learn life time skills!

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.

On top of all of these challenges, my students are SPECIAL---they are all SPECIAL needs students with a degree of disabilities ranging from learning problems, to Down Syndrome to Autism.

As the students get older I want them to learn community based skills-cooking, cleaning and shopping! Help me, help them!

Please consider helping us reach this goal!

My Project

My students need life long skills-they will never be 100% successful in a regular classroom. They need a different environment and skills that they need. In this day and age kids need to learn to succeed in the way most appropriate for them.

My classroom can be the place they succeed!

A different way or teaching and learning- hands on skills that everyone needs to succeed in life.

Learning basic cooking and cleaning skills. Doing jobs around the school and possibly treating the teachers to yummy treats; that they made!

Please help me make this project possible to my students!
